American Era Gundam Toy Discussion

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

That would be killer. It's not like it would be hard either. The limbs are generally the same for both Mobile Suits. Instead... they announce they're making MG 1/100 00 Seven Sword and Trans-Am 00.

Derp.

Atleast Sandrock's weapons look okay;

I think Sandrock's heat shortels and shield look great.

Even better actually. All MG's and PG's have an inner frame. The newer the kit, the better the frame.

looks like katoki finally got a redesign right (in terms of over all desing and coloring). is that the sandrock's uzi sticking out?


i've just snagged a free FG dynames from a gundam promotional tour(participants are given a kit and try to build it nice enough to win a prize) and i was wondering if there is such a promotion in america(i'm from the philippines if anyone was wondering)? the previous years it was red astrays (either the FG or the SD version) and looks like they're trying to get rid of the shelfwarming FG 00 kits so that's what they're giving away

Hmmm, never heard of such a promotion in North America, but all I know is that those things are selling for $5-10. They're really fun to work on though, with some paints and panel lines I made the FG Exia look better than an untouched HG.

I've been out of the Gunpla loop for too long. Time to start getting back in.

Am I right in seeing MGs of all 5 Gundam Wing Gundams? If so, I'm a happy nerd! Those are my favorite designs and it will be time to start building again if I can put the cast on my shelf.

Sandrock + Heavyarms still need to be released. Plus, they released the Epyon.

Epyon! I love the Epyon! Just looked him up on dalong. I'll definitely need one of him.

You know... I normally can't stand GM suits. Always cannon fodder, always designed to make the gundam look cooler, but I gotta say, the RGM-96X Jesta just looks badass. This suit reminds me of a Spartan from Halo, probably because he looks a lot like the armor configuration I used on Noble 6 in Halo Reach. I want a Master Grade version. I want it now. I may even paint it in the same colors I use in Halo.

Haha, you could probably even switch off a McFarlane or a Play Arts Kai Spartan head if they made a MG Jesta.

check out this custom rx-78-2. I love the updated, badass look the modeler gave it. Very schway.

tell me someone also had this experience:

you find out your neighbor got a 1/100 scale sword strike gundam for practically NOTHING and his kid (below 5 years old) is more interested in the sprue trees than the actual model. they actually threw out the plamo parts and kept the trees. granted they didn't have the instruction manual and just took out the parts and didn't assemble it but what are your opinions on it?

Looks like someone mixed some Eureka Seven in with my Gundam.

Flit seems pretty lackluster, even for a modern Gundam protagonist, but the supporting cast seems nice. It's no Unicorn or Sentinel, but I'm excited to see what it brings. I hope it handles aliens better than the 00 movie did.

Looks like official add-ons.... bad-ass;

Truth be told, i'm more interested in all those 1/100 Leos being displayed in the Gundam Wing dioramas. I mean, a MG Leo would pretty much guarantee a MG Tallgeese unless bandai is being really, REALLY stupid.

Haha, no kidding.

So MG 1/100 Heavyarms and RG 1/144 Skygrasper are looking solid.

Also really excited for MG 1/100 Duel!

some of the katoki redesigns are hit or miss with me. like... i didn't like sandrock kai due to the colors, but really like the original, despite the fact that he went and turned the heat shotels around compared to the anime. gundam nataku rocked, but his version of shenlong just doesn't do it for me. i dislike how he went with a beam trident, and i miss the extending arm gimmick. on top of that, because he tried to make his shenlong look so much like the original, the transition from it to his altron or nataku just feels forced. sadly, i can't get excited over heavyarms, just because i already know that the heavy arms kai or custom is so much more epic and just feels more complete. this one just feels like a nerfed heavyarms custom, which is truth is all it is
